The backlink search automation is a very useful feature, especially for the competitor backlinks link building strategy.

To access it, create a campaign, go to Step 2 - Opportunities, click over to “Backlink Search” in the Select Automation menu:

Here’s how to use it:

1. Select your search source:

  • Respona (Respona source is 5 credits for a result) and it's powered by Moz. It's ideal for folks who don't have a Moz subscription.

  • Connect other sources: either your own Moz, Ahrefs, or Semrush).

2. Enter the URL(s) that you would like to extract backlinks from.

  1. Set advanced settings:

  • How many results to return;

  • Rel tags (All, Dofollow, Nofollow);

  • Anchor text of the links;

  • Target URL

  • Source URL

  • Unlinked

  • Safety filters.

3. Click “Continue”.

4. You will be taken to the SEO filters screen. Here, you can set additional SEO filters through:

  • Moz (available to all users)

  • Ahrefs

  • Semrush

To use Ahrefs and Semrush filters you will need to connect your respective account to Respona.

5. Click “Continue”.

6. Enable a simultaneous contact search based on job titles and seniority and run the automation.

6. As opportunities are found, they will be added to your campaign.
